From Amman, Full Day tour – This tour leaves from Amman for full day tour of Petra.
It includes the 800 metre horse ride that we missed and entrance fees to Petra.
With cliffs reaching up to 80 metres, it is absolutely one of the most phenomenal gorges on earth. Our tour of Petra was led by an officer from Petra Jordan Development Authority.
While the actual performance of traditional music was less than stellar, the walk through the candle lit Siq to view the legendary Treasury building was awe inspiring.
The Siq is a narrow gorge winding its way towards the ruins for over 1 km.
His earbuds connected to his i Pod are hidden under his headscarf, he speaks with quick wit and references pop culture. We can't decide if he is teasing us and actually lives in a cave or if he goes home each night to an apartment with big screen TV and modern conveniences.
The cave wouldn't surprise us because we learn that many people still live in the surrounding ruins and that the families who work in Petra are granted permission to stay there there.
